it. stephanie: me, too! >> i don't think there's weakness in that. if you made a mistake say you're sorry and move on. the biggest problem we get into is trying to defend ourselves knowing we did something wrong. had i done something, i would have apologized for it. people know that about me. stephanie: oh, my god. the guy who owns the show trying to kill me for the life insurance is what is this, what should we do about this. chris and i are like well, this is the most ridiculous thing ever. >> i pointed out to him the time line of us playing the slow lauras eating the rice ball, talking about unpacking rice balls all morning long. >> here we go stephanie miller. [ laughter ] >> you really think that that would be the insult you would use? >> there are so many things about michelle malkin, i don't

think her ethnicity is a concern to anybody. stephanie: as i recall, jackie saying at one point that's a ridiculous point on health care because she's asian.

6:17 am
misinterpret by news busters posting a headline. >> they posted a misleading and out of context headline as they are wont to do. >> this is entirely untrue. >> exactly. when this gets posted to my going the news alert, it gets posted as the headline. stephanie: we'll show you why this is complete [bleep]. it's too late, you've already sent your insult letters to miss miller. >> is miss stephanie miller racist? no but... stephanie: anyway, so there's that. so that was part of my day yesterday.

6:19 am
this is -- >> it doesn't make sense to me that they would allow it. i don't understand why the secret service doesn't say this is a man who made a threat on the president, he should not be allowed if the chamber and that's the end of it. it's astonishing to me. you can invite hover you want. doesn't mean they should be allowed to come. stephanie: would you like fun facts? he has in the past threatened to kill president obama, secretary of state hillary clinton, dianne feinstein and barbara bachner. he said, this isn't like a news buster transcript, this is natural. >> if you want, i have the audio. stephanie: the whole thing? i was in chicago. >> this is supposed to be part of right ring word. >> obama. >> pull a machine gun.

7:03 am
presidents have been declaring the state of the union strong, or some variation of the word. "the new york times" has an interesting piece today saying that wasn't always the case, that when things weren't going well some presidents had no problem saying so. 1975, president ford announced bad news and didn't expect applause calling the state of the union not good, due to high unemployment. in in that 61, president kennedy used the word disturbing in describing the economy saying he was talking about to the nation at time of per i will and opportunity. president reagan in 19 ate two used the word as a way to show things had been improving from the year before. president clinton and bush used the term over and over again in their state of the unions and that's how it became solidified and something we've come to expect. also expect tonight president obama to make an announcement that he plans to bring home some 34,000 troops from afghanistan
7:04 am
by this time next year. that is slightly more than half of the troops that are till there. what else should we expect tonight? we're going to hear about jobs, the economy immigration likely climate change and gun control legislation. less certain will the president address the use of drones against u.s. citizens abroad. will he bring up syria or iran, or talk about security at the u.s. embassy and consulates. the washington post warns not to get too worked up about it, that the state of the union has rarely changed anybody's mind. we're back after the break. ♪

7:12 am
stephanie: exactly. here's how things are. >> here's how things are you guys figure it out. we know certain things are going to be said tonight the president is going to continue some of the themes from his inaugural address. i've got to tell you,. stephanie: you mean the issues that he ran on that the majority of americans agree with him but he will be obstructed by the republicans in congress? >> yes i mean those. the thing that is astonishing to me, what are we now, it is about three weeks since the inauguration, and it is a speech the farther away from it you get, rather like president kennedy's ask not what your country can do for you the farther away we get from seneca falls to selma to stonewall the more moved i am. the more i realize that that was a moment, a defining moment in the history of our country where he brought together the
7:13 am
new america the new american majority, which is women which is minorities, which now includes the lgbt community. he brought them together and rhetoric matters stephanie. that's the thing that, you know, they say words are not important, they, you know, they're spoken go out in the air, they're gone, but every now and again when a president speaks, and it's few and far between when you have those moments, it changes history and this president did that. stephanie: right but, you know, obviously this is what we're hearing, because this is going to focus more on the economy and jobs than anything else. >> it is. stephanie: again what's going to change? what are we facing now the march 1 deadline for avoiding. >> sequestration. stephanie: right. again, there's mitch mcconnell yesterday, clearly the president wants more revenue for more government he's gotten all the revenue he's going to get. been there done that.
7:14 am
that's the problem, he's going to talk about money for infrastructure, manufacturing job, clean energy, expanding access to early childhood education and there he will be sitting in front of a republican congress that's going to once again obstruct all of that, right? >> well, they are. what the president is also doing is he's leaving washington immediately, and among other things he is doing the modern era of the fireside chat, a google chat after the state of the union. he is going over the heads of this congress. that is the difference between barack obama 2.0. this president is liberated. you're no longer sensing that he's trying to get mitch mcconnell to come to the table or john boehner as if john boehner actually had any power left in his own caucus. he's now going to not only going to do the google chat, he's going to atlanta, south
7:15 am
carolina chicago he is back out on the road. obama for america has been becoming organized for action. there will be state of the union watch parties all over the country. we are in a permanent campaign, but in a good way actually, because that's how you're going to move this congress. stephanie: one of the issues obviously is going to be different tonight that the american people largely agree with him is on gun control and there willthere will gabrielle giffords and her husband the parents of the girl just slain in chicago sitting with michelle obama. you know, it seems to me, and there will be ted nugent on their side. i mean. >> suck on this. >> exactly. >> it is shameful. i would call it comedy, but it is, you know, still too close. it's tragedy to see ted nugent have any role or any presence in a ceremony like this, however when we use phrases like gun
7:16 am
control, ok, we give up -- it's pro choice, pro life. words do matter. this isn't about gun control. this is about gun safety, protecting children, this is about the things that 92% of americans agree on. stephanie: mmm hmm. >> if we allow them to define the terms which is what happened for those first four years, obamacare the affordable health care act became obamacare, became a pejorative. stephanie: right. >> we can't let that happen on this issue. when you have police chiefs, people who believe in public safety saying across the board we've got to do these things, then you win the debate, and that's what the president is saying. stephanie: here's the republican party saying we are not in disarray and there are two responses again to the state of the union, the republican party and the tea party. here's rand paul talking. >> i see it as an extra
7:17 am
response, i don't see it necessarily at divisive. i won't say anything that is necessarily like marco rubio is wrong. he and i don't always agree. this isn't about he and i. this is about the tea party. stephanie: they still haven't finished their argument between the republican party, the tea party and fox news before they can have a debate with us. >> wouldn't it be fun if rand paul just got up there and said marco -- rubio! just for the hell of it. rand paul is seriously running for president and just get ready for it. stephanie: that turkey, really? >> he is the tea party's darling, and so, you bring the rand paul, if you want to call them libertarians, you can, they do you bring that contingent in and marry it with the tea party and you've got a movement that's
7:18 am
going to be very tough for establishment. when marco rubio is the establishment candidate, you know you're in trouble. stephanie: exactly. what else do you expect to hear tonight from the president? >> climate change. stephanie: really? >> and we're getting a little preview. that was not a toss off line stephanie. stephanie: that's what senator boxer said when we got to go to her luncheon. she was genuinely excited with what the president said in the inaugural. >> did she serve box lunches? really? stephanie: really? really, you went there? >> it is something that no one expected rather like this vanishing position, no one really expected that the president was going to make this a top priority, and frankly it's long overdo, and i think we're going to hear it yet again tonight in the state of the union and it is going to be something that will cross party
7:19 am
lines. look, when you have climate disasters, when you have storms of the century annually, every year. stephanie: yeah. >> something is wrong. it cuts across -- remember, it hit republican areas remember it was peter king, a republican congressman who basically started screaming at his own leadership for their lack of responsiveness on it. we're getting to a place where the republicans themselves realize they have to act not because they think -- even if they don't believe it's real, they are seeing what's happening in their districts and it's economically a disaster for them. stephanie: yeah. it doesn't matter until it becomes money then it suddenly gets republican attention. >> in my back yard. stephanie: david bender, political director of progressive >> you can get the stephanie miller show! stephanie: golly! david babbledder happy state of the union talk to you tomorrow!

nugent? really. by the way speaking of others in the right wing clown car like senator he plans to postpone the confirmation of chuck hagel. he said i'll do that as long as it takes. >> can you do that? >> jay carney talking about ben goody. >> what is unfortunate is the continuing attempt to politicize an issue the nominees had nothing to do with it and to do so in a way that only does harm to our national security interests. stephanie: yes but chuck hagel the real thing they've got to get to the bottom of that from 2007 thing where one of his staffers maybe sexually harassed another staffer something he had nothing to do with in any way. it's troubling. very troubling incident. >> river city, troubling. stephanie: richard in chicago hello. caller: hope you're doing well, listen, a couple quickments.
7:55 am
stephanie, you're not a racist, you're too cool to be a racist. stephanie: thank you. caller: that binges, the republicans are turning into crabs in a barrel with the tea party versus the establishment. one other quick comment guns, policies against president obama and ted nugent being at the state of the union is really just about their racism, sexism, their bias. the only way to really fight back against that is that some of these people have to be run against, like the congressman stockman in his own district, in his next term, because that's the fascist way to deal with some of these knuckleheads that don't realize that they're really continue to go divide the country. stephanie: yeah. caller: that's wife what i see. stephanie: it's a ridiculous publicity stunt. his own constituents ought to tell him it's not appropriate. gary in new york, you're on the "stephanie miller show" show. hi. caller: hi, how are you? i just wanted to remind you of something that i know that you
7:56 am
know. you saw the presidential favor movie. the president says america isn't easy. america is advanced citizenship. you got to want it bad, because you have to acknowledge a man who is standing in the center of a stage saying something that would make your blood boil, advocating things, you know. stephanie: right. caller: that's what ted nugent is. stephanie: yeah. caller: ted nugent is that guy. stephanie: i think the extra step is that he is someone who as on at least two occasions threatened the life of the president publicly. caller: i understand that. and as crazy as he is, i'm an american and i'm one of those hand of the free americans home of the braves americans. i'm not afraid of some guy standing in the middle of the stage screaming his lungs out. i'm not afraid of him. stephanie: some have other thoughts on that.
7:57 am
i understand what you're saying. that's where free speech stops, threatening the life of someone else. janet michigan, welcome. hello. hi janet. caller: hi! boy, it's tough to be on hold, because you hear so many things that you just want to talk about it all. stephanie: yes, all right well go ahead. caller: i'm in michigan and i'm a brown skin, half native american indians. stephanie: uh-huh. caller: i have been raped, by the way. i'm trying to figure out and maybe jim can really help with this too he's such a historian, because the deal is, we vote things in, and then they expire? what is up with that? stephanie: right. caller: violence against women the equal rights amendment the. stephanie: i'm sorry, i don't think it's anymore complicated. if you're voting against the violence for women act you're
7:58 am
for violence against women. the objections they make are ludicrous, i think. caller: this is crazy. if you're a woman in america it's getting more scary. just because what do we mean you guys what's, you know, you're in our faces. i was not the republicans to keep this up, because we do have elections coming and that's what they don't realize. the deeper they dig the hole, the more we're all watching, and i'll tell you right now how we feel is we have fear. we have fear for what they're trying to do, because they're in our faces with all kinds of negativity. stephanie: that would be awesome, if even the gerrymandering didn't work and it blowed up in their face real good. [ explosion ] stephanie: bob in ashville, hi. caller: how are you this morning? stephanie: good, go ahead. caller: i hope news busters watching. as a veteran it offends me that this representative from texas

union is pretty nasty. every time you poke them in any way, it's a horrible attack of epic proportions and then they smack back, and they're like i don't know what you're to us. stephanie: right. according to the front line special, the administration officials didn't expect ryan to attended the speech, and they tried to warn obama of ryan's presence but didn't get to him in time. i'm reading that and going that was some sort of horrible -- caller: what does it matter? privatizing medicare is a horrible idea. >> he didn't personally attack him. he just pointed out his policies were wrong. stephanie: he didn't call him the budget munster or anything that one would hear here on the "stephanie miller show." >> didn't hold up a picture of him in workout clothes.% >> didn't say he was unpacking a rice ball. stephanie: he didn't say what kind of dork wears a baseball cap backwards. and do anything but curls really? >> with those biceps, he wasn't curling anything.

8:28 am
in and take away some guns of people who don't need them. this would apply to gangs apply to the mexican cartels. it's just a tool someone might want to use to take away a lot of the problems we have in the cities, the inner city, chicago. what if you took away the gang members' guns or if they have them, they go to jail just like a tryst because guess what? they are. stephanie: all right. i'm not a lawyer. i'm not sure drones can involve every problem. jacki? >> i'm not sure there's a legal way to do that, but i do think we obviously have a problem not only with guns, but gaining violence and it really is a form of domestic terrorism. if you're afraid to step outside your house because you're afraid that somebody is going to use a weapon like that in a dangerous manner, that is a form of terrorism. stephanie: that's right.
